  • Check out La Torta Gorda as it was featured on Top 5 Restaurants for #2 - amazing pierna enchilada torta with carnitas
  • Tortas here are huge! One might be enough to split between two people.
  • Chilaquiles with 2 eggs and carne asada!!
  • The tortas really are gordathe "junior" size is plenty. Love the milanesa torta personally, but everyone is not wrong about the pierna enchilada.
  • Tortas come in a Junior and a Regular size; the Junior is a reasonable meal, and the Regular is ridiculous, like the largest of super burritos. Try the al pastor.
  • The Pierna Enchilada Torta is huge, filling and delicious.
  • When a "hole-in-the-wall" turns out to be a bright family-run stop with outrageously good tortas and super authentic Puebla eats; that's 38 material. [Eater 38 Member]
  • No burritos means authentic mexican! You must come here!
  • the Hawaiian is the best!
